Question about Yahoo Messenger

YM 9.0 Main Window pop-up

Problem: Yahoo Messenger 9.0 main window pop-ups every time on discovery of a new network connection. Due to specific of my work I need frequently enable/disable multiple VPN connections. Enabling VPN causes Yahoo Messenger to open main window and grab focus. I couldn’t find an option in “Preferences” how to disable this. Please help.

    Thanks for help, but this is not a problem. YIM opens Yahoo Insider Window on YIM start up. It, yes, can be disabled by unchecking Show Yahoo Insider .

    The problem I want to fix is different. YIM is already up and running OK, main window is closed (not just minimized, but closed, so the only icon is appearing in the icon area of task bar). Now, when I open a new network connection (whether wireless, for example, or VPN connection), the YIM re-open the Main Window (not insider; just Main Window with contacts, etc.)

    Thank you.

I can't sign in my yahoo messenger


Few sugesstions :
1) Uninstall your current YM, restart your pc/laptop, then try installing a new one. Link : a) http://www.mydigitallife.info/yahoo-messenger-10-final-full-version-offline-standalone-setup-installer-download/ b) http://www.geckoandfly.com/6309/download-yahoo-messenger-10-full-offline-installer-15-8mb/
2) If it does not work, try check if your windows is installing new updates, sometimes YM does crash when window is updating. If you are using Win7, then just go to: --> Control panel/ System & security/ Windows Update/ Change setting
In the setting panel, you will see "Important Updates" box selection. Change it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them". Restart your pc/laptop, then try log in to your YM.
3) If it still crash, then your internet connection might be the problem, & also, Yahoo! can be down sometimes too.

I kept having the same problems with YM. Every time i tried to sign in, it won't let me sign in. it's about yahoo! messenger troubleshooter and It said " We can't let you sign in". I am sure it was not...


Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button. use registry cleaner reg in out to solve registry error for messenger

Can i download messenger 10 over my messenger 9


You can download version 10 on your computer and then update YM, running the setup. You cannot have 2 versions of YM on your computer.
If you want to connect to id's at a time use the following: You have to use a multi messenger registry and after you run that registry you will be able to open Yahoo Messenger how many times you want.
Here is a link for the specific registry: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Chat/Instant-Messaging/Yahoo-Multi-Messenger.shtml
http://messenger.ro.im/ym-multi-messenger-for-ym-9-beta.htm
On the second link scroll down and look for "AICI" and click on it to download.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers
